Hooray for True, True Believers

I got a kick out of writing with Boonstra and hit songwriter Wynn Varble back when none of us had a pot to piss in. 
HfTTB is a quirky little number that never got the chance to see the light of day.  Don’t guess Cliff liked it (inside joke).

There’s somethin’ ‘bout a boat

Bigger than a house in your own back yard

That makes people start to talk

And wonder how sane you really are

There’s somethin’ ‘bout a flood

That makes those people wanna change their tune

But Noah in the ark knew there was no more room

Chorus:    Hooray for True True Believers

Freeborn souls and wishful thinkers

With a little bit of faith

Those who listen to a still small voice

Or thunder from a clear blue sky

Goin’ with the feelin’ 

When they know they’re right

There’s somethin’ ‘bout the world

And the notion that the whole darn thing is flat

When you’re livin’ on the edge

With nothin’ but the stars and a homemade map

There’s somethin’ ‘bout doubt

That kinda takes the wind out of your sails

But Columbus kept his cool

He knew he could not fail

Repeat chorus

Bridge:  Hope comes from out of the blue   The rest comes from deep inside of you

There’s somethin’ ‘bout a dream

When the wheels of change move way too slow

And the color of your skin is with you

Every where you go

There’s somethin’ ‘bout a cause

Someone standing up for the rest of us

That made little Rosa Parks

Climb aboard that bus
